Fresh Visuals | DJ Koze – ‘I Haven’t Been Everywhere But It’s On My List’

If you’re music connoisseur, then you’re no stranger to the legendary DJ mix series, DJ Kicks.  The compilation series has been around since 1995 and has featured some incredible DJs.

Stepping alongside the likes of Vikter Duplaix, Chromeo, Maya Jane Coles, Stacy Pullen, and Thievery Corporation, DJ Koze is making some much-needed noise with this DJ Kicks compilation.

This is the 50th release in the mix series and it certainly never ceases to amaze. The album has a lot of really solid tracks, but the standout track “I Haven’t Been Everywhere But It’s On My List” now has a cool music video.

You might not have been everywhere, but this video will make you want to go somewhere.

 

Fresh Visuals | Disclosure x Gregory Porter – ‘Holding On’

Roll right into the weekend with these fresh visuals from Disclosure and Gregory Porter.

It’s Disclosure, so enough said! Just watch the video :)

 

Craaaazy Visuals | Hitchhiker ’11(ELEVEN)’

If you ever find yourself up at 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning and looking for some crazy EDM music videos, then tune into MTV’s Clubland. Why? Because most of the videos they air are crazy good, while some videos will leave you with a dumbfounded WTF look.

A video that is bound to leave you saying “what the hell did I just watch” is this set of crazy animated visuals from Hitchhiker.

Before we dive into the video, let’s talk about the song. The track is called “11(Eleven)” and it’s an EDM number that is beyond repetitive. Yet, despite how repetitive it is, I actually kind of like it. It has subtle hints of trap moments that send you into a groove. But the high pitched chanting might get on your nerves, so if that’s the case then don’t play this too loud.

Alright, so how about these visuals? Where do I even begin? It reminds me of a 90s rave meets The Sims. And you know what, I’m not even sure if that description makes sense…so let’s cut to the chase.

Watch this crazy ass video.

Awesomesauce | Grand Theft Arthur (VIDEO)

If you’re looking for the perfect blend of #throwbackthursday nostalgia and modern video game pop culture, then look no further than “Grand Theft Arthur.”

Us gamers aren’t stranger to the crazy mods that PC players have created for Grand Theft Auto 5. I’ve seen some mind-blowing PC mods that make me wish I had skills to create hacks like that, but at least I can enjoy the genius of YouTube user Merfish (known for his GTA mods).

Merfish has recreated the opening for the classic kids show Arthur with in-game footage of Franklin and his squad in GTA5. The result? A hilarious reminder of how easy it is to take our innocent childhood shows and fuck them up in a heavy dosage of #awesomesauce…which you can’t help but to love every devilish moment.

Awesomesauce | Stop-Motion Karate (VIDEO)

The folks over at Corridor Digital have unleashed a new viral video called “Stop-Motion Karate” and it’s totally #awesomesauce.

Basically the video is a quirky story of what happens when two guys try to win a girl’s heart and duke it out kung fu style. The twist? Well, it’s shot in stop-motion style sort of like the oldschool NES game, Karateka.

Check out the visuals and be sure to peep out the behind-the-scenes footage on how this incredible stop-motion video was shot using a GoPro.

Fresh Vibes | Jax Jones – ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah’ (VIDEO)

UK producer, Jax Jones, will surely bring a smile to your face with his refreshing new video for his single “Yeah Yeah Yeah.”

In the music video, we see a group of skaters taking their babies out for a leisurely stroller ride, or shall I say an epic stroller ride? Personally, I don’t recall having that much fun when I was a cute toddler, but this video shows off a fun hipster side of parenthood.
